People riding along San Mar Road in southern Washington County might not notice the small rectangular marker atop the green road signs at the intersection with Mount Lena Road.
But the family members of Elvin E. Stouffer know it's there, and they are thankful for the efforts of the Joint Veterans Council of Washington County.
"He was 22 years old when he was killed in the South Pacific in 1944," said his brother, Fayette Stouffer. "I was 18 when we got the news."
On this Veterans Day 2007, the Stouffer family members are remembering their own lost loved one, as are nearly 300 other Washington County families.
